Dreams

Monday, January 14th, 2013.  CD24, 10DPO.

I’ve been having some crazy dreams the past few nights, and last night was no exception.

I tossed and turned with some of the vivid situations playing out in my head, and then I just woke up.  From that point on, I think I just hovered on the edge of sleep and waking, and little wisps of sad dreams floated by until my alarm went off.

I feel like this restless night was probably a big part of the reason why my temp dipped so low today, but a small part of me hopes that maybe it’s an implantation dip.  (A slightly bigger part of me, that has the voice of my friend Kboo, knows that I shouldn’t count on temps at all during a medicated cycle, lol…)

The “dream” I was having just before I woke for good was not a happy one.

I was basically flipping through images of all of my friends and family, counting how many children they had all brought into the world since the husband and I started trying for a baby of our own in March of 2009.

It seems like hundreds.

Couples have met, dated, gotten engaged, married, honeymooned and then procreated in that amount of time.  We’ve just been stuck, stagnant, trying in vain for what seems so far away.

I try not to wallow, but when you’re dreaming, you’re a captive to your subconscious.

I woke up on that sad, bitter note, and I’m finding it difficult to trudge my way up out of the funk.

On a somewhat lighter note, I have continued to test out the Ovidrel trigger over the weekend, and can report that this morning’s test was so barely-there that I’m calling it a BFN.

Here’s hoping for some pink lines to wrap up the week…

Triphasic

Monday, August 13th, 2012.  CD28, 10DPO.

Well, as I suspected, FertilityFriend gave me the “triphasic pattern” notification this morning…

For those of you who are not familiar with the term, let me give you a brief tutorial.

When charting your basal body temperature (BBT), an ovulatory chart should show two levels of temperatures: lower pre-ovulatory temps, and higher post-ovulatory temps. You occasionally see a second shift a week or so after ovulation when temps climb higher and stay there, and that is called a triphasic pattern.

FertilityFriend says that while the triphasic pattern can sometimes be seen on non-pregnancy charts, and should not be considered a definite indicator of pregnancy, “This pattern is 179% more frequent on pregnancy charts.”

Soooooooo… Yeah.  This is the first time I’ve ever seen something on my chart that looks like a genuine implantation dip, and now a possible triphasic chart…

I’m trying not to freak out, but I feel like this lucky little bit of data showing up on the husband’s birthday is hard not to smile about.  🙂

And, because I know someone will inevitably wonder, I don’t have any test results to report as of yet.  I’m still testing out that pesky trigger and while I thought it would be gone today, it wasn’t quite.  I expect that if I’m not pregnant, it should be gone tomorrow for sure.

Have a magnificent Monday, friends!  🙂

 

Update:

As I’ve noticed this post gets a lot of traffic, probably from other women searching to find success stories with triphasic charts.  I want to update to let those online-researchers know that yes, this was a BFP cycle for me (this post went up in the morning of 10DPO, and I actually got the first faint BFP that same evening).  It was the only triphasic chart I’ve ever had, and not-so-coincidentally, the only BFP chart, as well.

Now, for what it’s worth, this BFP cycle did end in miscarriage, but that was no doubt due to factors outside of my body temperature.  If you’re searching for triphasic chart success stories, you’ve found one! 

Good luck!
